Learning outcomes

Through various different teaching methods (lectures, discussions, meetings with experts, short films), the course aims to introduce students to a critical understanding of key concepts of the discipline in order to analyze the question of “lies” (untruths/bias) in the medias highlighting the peculiar sensitivity and the potentiality of the anthropological approach.

Program

Anthropological knowledge is a practical knowledge, action oriented, constantly engaging with other world views. Starting from these premises, the course will be divided into two parts: the critical analysis of some objects of study of the discipline, such as culture, boundaries, belonging, representation of alterity, practices and local knowledge, followed by the analysis of cases of "false rumors" circulating in the media from print media to the internet. In some cases, these untruths/distortions are harmless, in others they are deliberate manipulations created ad hoc, news built on stereotypes, which can have devastating effects. Critically addressing "fake news" is a vital issue for students who are involved in communications. During the course we will deal with a particular type of "lies"(untruth/distortion), those that are fed from an imagery filled with cultural stereotypes and the desire that our representation of reality matches that which corresponds to ours. Fake news creates dangerous short circuits.
